  • 1 (1 lb 10 oz, 750 g or 26.4 oz) panettone loaf
  • 2 cups full fat eggnog
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/8 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 2 tbsps golden brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Remove panettone from wrapper and dice into 1-1/2" pieces. Set aside. In a large bowl add eggnog, eggs, sugar, salt and nutmeg. Whisk until fully combined. Add raisins and panettone. Toss until panettone is completely coated in eggnog mixture.
  • Add coated panettone and any excess liquid to a 2-quart baking dish that has been coated with butter or cooking spray. Cover and refrigerate for eight hours or overnight.
  • Remove from refrigerator 30-45 minutes prior to baking (letting it warm up slightly). Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the soaked panettone bread. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 30 minutes more.
  • Serve warm with maple syrup.
